It was not too long ago after years of many residences in Breckenridge telling Slidell city officials and politicians we have a problem that something finally got done. “Houston, we had a problem….” Who wants to finish this story? Please let me know.
WELCOME to the Breckenridge Homeowners Association of Slidell. Here you can find information about what’s going on in your neighborhood and community.
After fourteen years I bit the bullet and moved our Breckenridge neighborhood website, called BHAslidell.com, from a microsoft .ASP / HTML basically non-graphical platform to a much simpler graphical WordPress platform that almost anyone can work with. It took me two days to migrate over from the previous hosting service, but we are here and things are mostly working. Please leave me a comment if you notice that I missed something. I and we will continue to make improvements as we go with Photos and even Videos of our neighborhood that pertain to any given subject of the day.
You might ask, what can I do to help out now that our website is much more accessible. Well that is a great question, neighbor. For the moment, I need great graphical content of things going on in Breckenridge that would be of interest to you and your neighbors. Things like scenic photos of the Nature Park and Trail, nice looking homes with gardens, lots of children playing and having a good time, scenic photos of the front entrance and fence line with a beautiful skyline or sunset.
To some degree this is already happening on the Facebook Group my wife created for our neighborhood. I can pull content from there or you can send it to me via email. (See Contacts.) We will talk more about this and other ideas as time goes on, but for now enjoy the new site.
Breckenridge Gets A Face Lift
It was around late February of 2020 when we finally got this project off the ground. I wish I had the foresight to have taken photos of the heavy equipment used to remove the bushes and debris. The azaleas, half of them were huge and in many cases were dying and over twenty-three years old. They were a maintenance pain in the butt and we could not keep then looking like they did back in the day. Anyway, it was a big job getting them out of there, let me tell you. Then on top of that, they accidentally busted the a waterline that no one seemed to know where it originated from including the City of Slidell. Well that caused even more delays.
Eventually it all worked out though. Now the neighborhood has a new entrance that promises to be much easier to maintain and stay more colorful throughout most of the year. We used Encore’s Autumn Amber Azaleas and pine straw with a black weed barrier under the straw. So far no weeds this season.
